Emjoi Micro Pedi & Soap & glory heel genius

I have neglected my feet lately and to be honest, I don't know why. I guess I've found other things to do just to avoid sorting them out, but with spring fast approaching I figured it was time to get my feet in order. I got the Emjoi micro pedi back in December when I found it on offer for £29.99 at Argos. I wasn't too sure if it was going to work out or not, since I've seen and heard mixed reviews so decided to give it a go myself. Since I'm obsessed with soap & glory, I teamed up this foot treatment with my heel genius lotion. Then for some weird reason I decided it would  be a good idea to blog about it! Now I know lots of people have done videos reviewing the micro pedi on youtube etc, but people telling me how well it works doesn't really show me (does that even make any sense?), so I decided to get my feet out and show the world! Argh, run away now if you don't like seeing feet, haha!

First off, I took a shower so that my feet were all clean. Then I placed an old towel over the bed so that I wouldn't get any dead skin on my bedding. I was going to do this in the bathroom, but there was nowhere to sit and I knew this would take me a while. So the instructions for the Emjoi micro pedi tell you not to put it on your skin for more than 2-3 seconds at a time. This is where I totally broke the rules. To be honest, unless you do this very regularly, I can't see 2-3 seconds giving you any results. I probably shouldn't condone following my rules since I'm sure Emjoi have that warning for a reason, but this is what worked for me.

So here are my feet before using the micro pedi. As you can see, cracked heels, and hard skin that definitely needs sorting out ready for my sandals come out of the wardrobe!

I used the micro pedi as long as it needed to remove the hard skin, so totally ignored their 2-3 seconds rule. I know, I'm bad but it worked out really well and my feet aren't sore or anything so I don't think it matters as long as you don't go crazy and damage yourself. Here is a picture where my left food has been micro pedi'd (lets make that a thing) and the right one hasn't so you can see the comparison.

Et voila, my feet are all soft! I popped a lot of the soap and glory heel genius lotion on, and then put some cotton socks on my feet. Now i'm ready to go about my day and let the lotion do it's work. I will post some update pictures tomorrow morning to show you exactly how it turned out!
